The disks rotate freely, catching light from inside and outside the shade. Stick body and flat round base are chrome. Shade: 22-inch Height, 6-inch Diameter top tier, 10-inch Diameter middle tier, 15-inch Diameter bottom tier. Tiers are 3-inch apart.”
And one customer reviews their experience with their purchase. “This lamp has a retro look that works well in my bedroom.

Kenroy Home Luella Floor Lamp
This piece of history is designed with brushed steel containing white and clear acrylic accents. It’s about 58 inches tall with a 15-inch diameter shade. One of the customers who gave this product a 4 out of 5 star rating said this about it.
“I'm very happy with the design of this lamp. The clear glass spheres and white beads near the top of the lamppost look even better in person than they look on the photo. The beads make this lamp more stylish than your average plain floor lamp w/ white shade, but it's simple enough that it fits in anywhere without clashing with furniture or decorations.
Assembly was also very easy. You just screw each section of the post together and then the lampshade is secured with a ring that screws it into place. It didn't require any tools.
Unfortunately the lampshade came with a few dirt smudges. I had to turn the shade so the smudges are facing the wall.
I uploaded a couple of photos of the lamp so that you can see the detail and shade up close.” – Julia Cove
